Rich People Privileges That They Don't Realize Are Actually A Privilege
It's the little things we take for granted.
Buying a cup of coffee from our corner bodega, going to a movie every now and again, and choosing to take a taxi instead of the subway.
Things that seem trivial to us, but are a luxury to others.
Who worries if they spend that $3.50 on a cup of coffee that they won't have enough to pay this month's rent or electricity bill?
A lot of folks.
Even people who don't live in the height of luxury tend to overlook that they live a privileged life in the grand scheme of things.
A life many others deeply envy.
"What privilege do rich people have that they don’t understand is actually a privilege?"

"I honestly just can't imagine a world where money wasn't a constant ache in the back of my mind."
"Gotta pay rent, gotta pay for food, car broke down time to empty our savings again and eat ramen for a month."

Not Living In Fear
"Freedom from the constant overhanging worry about money."- The_Safe_For_Work

It's also rather ironic that the number of people who never bat an eye about spending any sum of money almost always feel bad for themselves about something.
Making them in need of an even bigger reality check than they were already entitled to.
